Sometimes, new parents can get a little bit too creative when it comes to naming their babies. From brands to food and even STDs, here’s a list of some of the most bizarre baby names in 2019.

Naming a kid is a great responsibility and should involve a lot of thinking from the parents. Whether they want to give their kid a family name to honor someone, a rare name to make them stand out, or a well-known name that would be easy for everyone, the selection process can become a nightmare.

However, some parents seem not to delve too much into the options and prefer to go with familiar brand names, their favorite food, and even the name of sexually transmitted diseases.

In a recent Netmums thread, parents shared the strangest monikers they’d heard in past months. The most bizarre, without a doubt, was Chlamydia. But there are also brand names like Armani and Diesel, and salad ingredients like Lettuce. As in, babies are walking around with those names.
